Spots before my eyes.

Hello everyone, how is your week going? I just got my flu shot today...a little late but never mind. Being the sook I am when it comes to needles I gave myself a blueberry muffin and english breakfast tea treat at the local coffee shop to help make it feel better. hehe.
I asked my doctor if there were any side effects? He said "No, I had mine done and I'm not dead yet!"
Well, that was comforting!

This week at Just Add Ink. The Challenge theme was Just Add a Fun Background.

I really like punching through cardstock and adding designer paper behind so came up with this card using various circle punches for my background.

 Punching through cardstock makes a quick, easy and FUN background anytime!
I had fun adding little flowers to some of the larger circles to match the flowery designer paper underneath.
And to go with the scallop circles in the sentiment I also added a scallop edge border and a designer builder brad.
Hope you can come up with some fun punched backgrounds too.
